It’s not every day or every week that you go shopping for a new bed. Even when you do, the process can be pretty arduous because there are so many options to choose from. But shopping for a bed is a must from time to time. So, how do you know it’s time to start shopping for a new bed? Here are some signs.
Your Bed is a Sinking Ship
One surefire way to know that it is time to replace your mattress is that it is sagging. Getting out of bed shouldn’t feel like climbing out of a hole. But if your bed feels like this every morning, it is probably a good idea to ditch the Titanic and get a new bed.
It’s Past Eight Years
Think back. When was the last time you purchased your bed? If you can’t remember, your answer is college years, or it’s well over eight years, you may want to take the time out soon to start perusing stores for a new bed.
Your Bed Is Full of Stains
Many activities take place on a mattress. But one that may cause the most stains is sleeping on it and releasing sweat. But sweat stains aren’t the only stains that may get embedded in your mattress. Luckily, you can clean your mattress and rid it of these stains. But if your bed is old, it may be a good idea to toss it and get a new one.
Sleeping on a Hotel Bed Feels Better Than Your Own
Do you travel often and seem to get more rest on vacation than at home? Don’t get me wrong. A vacation is a great reason to get as much rest as possible. But does your sleep time feel more restful? It could be because the hotel beds are in better condition than your own bed at home. If this is the case, then you may want to start shopping for a new bed.
You’re Itching, Badly
No. Your bed itself may not be the source of your itching. But what’s in your bed may be. Unfortunately, your bed may have developed an infestation of bed bugs that take a plug out of your skin each night as you rest. While some pest control companies specialize in bed bug removal that can help you get rid of these critters, it may be a better idea to cut your losses and get a new bed.
If you are experiencing any of these effects from your current bed, chances are you need a new mattress. So why not make your new bed an Intellibed?
